The Crown Crafting Motif: Dro-m’Athra Style is now available in the Crown Store. Get this otherworldly motif for a limited time between today (January 26) and 10am EST on January 30.
The Dro-m’Athra Style costs 6,000 crowns and will be available on all platforms for a limited time from January 26 to January 30.
My recommendation is to save your crowns for housing update that will be released in a few weeks. The Dro-m’Athra style chapters can be farmed reliably from the Maw of Lorkhaj, if you have ESO+ or the Thieves Guild DLC. According to TamrielTradeCenter.com, there is a decent supply of these motifs available on the [PC] guild traders with prices in the 5,000 – 20,000g range.
The following is a summary of the crafting related changes included in this #ESOTU patch for the PC and Mac. Most of this patch addresses abilities, item sets, more bug fixes, and housing updates.
Note: This patch is currently on the Public Test Server
The Elder Scrolls Online v2.7.3 includes some additional balance tweaks and bug fixes for combat, in addition to numerous fixes surrounding the player housing system. We do have a number of known issues relating to grouping and sitting in chairs, which will be addressed before this update goes live. The size of this patch is approximately 540MB.
Target Skeletons now stack to 200 in the inventory. That’s a lot of skeletons!
Added a higher-health Target Skeleton to Rolis Hlaalu’s store: the Robust Target Skeleton. This Target Skeleton makes a better target for those who want to evaluate larger skeleton damage sums over long periods of time.
Rolis Hlaalu now sells an envelope that, when opened, will provide a random purple Furnishing Plan.
Adjusted the drop chance calculations for Master Writs from Clothiering, Blacksmithing, and Woodworking: now they look at your long-term mastery of their own research information when determining your chance of receiving a Master Writ.
Increased the Writ Voucher yield for Akaviri-style items from Master Writs by 10%, and for Orzorga’s Smoked Bear Haunch and Psijic Ambrosia by 25%.
After fighting a Target Skeleton, you will now get a report via the chat log indicating your damage per second as well as the length of the fight.
Increased the chance to receive furnishing-related rewards from criminal activities like pickpocketing and murder.
All homes now load the Unfurnished version by default when previewed. You may swap between the Furnished/Unfurnished versions exactly as before when desired.
All furnishings in Cyrodiil are now sold for Alliance Points instead of gold.
Items now show whether they are interactable, sittable, readable, lights, animated, crafting stations, or target skeletons on the item tooltip.
Updated the pricing of furnishings from Home Goods Furnishers to improve overall consistency.
Added Population to the House Information panel. This communicates the current/maximum amount of player characters in your house.
Before the followers of the Prophet Veloth left Summerset for Morrowwind, they build several secret shrines for illicit worship of the Daedric princes. It is believed that after the Chimer left Summerset, all of these heretical shrines were found and destroyed.
Located in Northern Auridon just west of Firsthold, the ancient Mehrunes’ Spite awaits. Generally, this delve is not a favourable location to farm crafting materials.
If you are excited about housing as much as I am, I suggest checking out the article “Homestead: Furnishing Day 1” on Tamrielfoundry.com. It talks about the logisitics of obtaining furniture crafting plans (1100) and harvesting the furniture materials. I have to agree, we are in for a grind.
The article quotes a source at Zenimax that recipe sourcing is influenced by the region they are found. There was a similar approach when provisioning recipes were introduced. I recall watching Icy’s YouTube video on housing and how she was disappointed that she didn’t find any Redguard themed recipes in the Redguard zone she was farming the recipes in.
The element of housing that was missed in the article was the ability to get recipes and items from Fishing. Overall, it’s a great read.
